Aldi isnt the first, glad they've joined the club, perhaps do it all year round like others...

1) SAINSBURY’S 7.6%
Food surplus: 38,767 tonnes
Food donated: 2,935 tonnes
Wasted food: 35,832 tonnes (of which 8,922 tonnes sent to animal feed and 26,910 tonnes for anaerobic digestion)
London stores with food donation partnerships: 57% (208 of 365 stores)
They say: “We were co-founder of food redistribution charity FareShare in 1994 and have been working ever since to donate surplus food to charities, longer than any other supermarket. In the past year we sent 425 tonnes to FareShare and about 2,510 tonnes was donated from 931 of our 1,383 stores nationwide that have partnerships with charities, including 208 of our 365 London stores. Our aim is for all stores to have at least one food donation partner by 2020.”


How do they define 'less fortunate individuals' though?? Homeless yes, homeless smackheads and people who have spent money they dont have on stuff they dont need NO!

This is a great scheme though, people get fed and the stores reduce their waste charges and environmental impact.... its not really rocket science

Pretty much if you are queuing for free food you are less fortunate than most people in the UK.

Not really, my point is that if you've squandered your money you're more stupid than less fortunate

I personally wouldn't know what's squandered and what's not, I have no idea how far benefits go. I don't know an individuals circumstances, I don't know why someone would chose to spend what little they have on drugs or alcohol either. Maybe you can volunteer at your local Aldi since you can judge what is squandered.
Other supermarkets reduce them near closing time so they get sold, my local Sainsbury's don't bin turkeys.
